Bradley Post, Managing Director of RIFT tax refunds, comments:

“Christmas is a time for families and loved ones to meet and celebrate, however, we need to also pay tribute to those hard workers who keep the country running over the Christmas period.

Our research suggests that employees might not have a choice in working Christmas and where possible, I would like to see employers giving their staff some form of reward.”
